This temple is quite interesting and lively, and located close to the statue of the founder of Hohhot. Don't miss it if you spend a day in the city.

One of the most impressive and beautifully preserved temples I've visited in China that didn't require climbing up mountains! It's not free, but it's worth the small entrance fee cost. The buildings are beautifully preserved and it's still a busy and active monastery. The most...More
